‘We Have Your Back’: Valerie Jarrett Supports Dem Muslim Ilhan Omar in Attack on Jewish Republican Lee Zeldin

Senior Barack Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett tweeted a message of strong support Wednesday night to anti-Israel, ISIS sympathizer Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) after she attacked Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY) as a bully upset at having to deal with Muslim women.

Omar, a Muslim, was responding to a tweet by Zeldin, who is Jewish and pro-Israel, that called her appointment to a House Foreign Affairs subcommittee where he is the ranking member as “crazy”. A Muslim activist, Arsalan Iftikhar, quoted Zeldin’s tweet, calling him ‘Islamophobic.’ Omar tweeted over that comment, saying, “Don’t mind him, he is just waking up to the reality of having Muslim women as colleagues who know how to stand up to bullies! It’s gonna be fun watching him lose his marbles,” closing with a crazy face emoji.

Jarrett commented to Omar, “Shake him up, ! We have your back.”
